In fact, there are a lot of “gradets” in the Czech Republic. But this word just indicates the type of settlement. It is geographical mark and no more. But the theme of my post isn’t about all the «Hradec» of the Czech Republic. It is about Jindrichuv Hradec, which differs among others because of its name like a bottle of Borjomi on shelves of a supermarket. Like many other Czech cities, Jindrichuv Hradec originally was a Slavic settlement, then it became Slavic fortress, which existed from X century. In the XII century the south-eastern Bohemia came into possession of Vitek of Prcice.
